Happy New Year
Basile New Year’s Eve and Jan. 2-5
It’s not easy being Greek, but it can be super funny! Basile demonstrates the humor of a Greek family and background through his comedy routine that features material from his Greek upbringing. This week McCurdy’s is proud to bring comedy’s favorite comedic character, Jimmy the Greek, as performed by Basile, to our stage for your entertainment! Basile has performed around the world for audiences on four different continents and now he’s bringing his “Dysfunctionally Yours” tour to McCurdy’s! Check out the show that has led to hundreds of television appearances, including HBO, Showtime, Comedy Central, A&E, The Tonight Show, and NBC, just to name a few. You may also recognize Basile’s voice as that of Universal Studio’s Bullwinkle J. Moose, Comedy Central’s programs, Japanese anime productions, or syndicated radio as “The Godfather of Soul, James Brown.” Enjoy an evening laughing hysterically at the mishaps, eccentricities and riotous observations of this Greek-American when you come out to see Basile this week at McCurdy’s!
If you’re looking for an exceptional way to spend your New Year’s Eve, we’ve got you covered! Green Room doors open at 8:30 for an exciting evening of comedy and revelry as we ring in the New Year. Our New Year’s Eve Extravaganza begins at 9:30 with Les McCurdy hosting several guest performers before Basile takes the main stage as our headliner. Stick around after the show to watch the ball drop together and enjoy a champagne toast at midnight. Say farewell to 2019 and welcome 2020 in style with party favors, raffles and a full food and beverage menu. Make this New Year’s Eve one to remember when you celebrate with McCurdy’s and Basile, beginning at 8:30 Tuesday evening!
If you stop by on Thursday evening, you’ll enjoy a bonus treat when Les McCurdy joins the comedians on-stage for our Off The Clock interview. This 15-20 minute interview with the comedians is a great way for audience members to get to know them more personally. There’s also a Q & A portion with the audience, so bring your questions about who they are, where they come from and how they got started in comedy!
